This was a great place to stay in Arequipa for a great price. It's only 10 minutes walking from the main square (Plaza de Armas) and the walk felt safe even at night. The rooms are basic but clean, beds are firm and the bathroom has hot-enough water. The garden was our favorite part, so relaxing! Breakfast was good and... More

Casa de Avila was a great place to stay. I spent two weeks in Arequipa this summer. The staff felt like family, the room felt like my own personal domain, the garden felt like another world. For instance, a few of my friends and I would go out for some fun and try to experience the city of Arequipa itself... More

This is a great affordable place to stay in Arequipa. Rooms are very basic but clean and there is a view and access to a nice grass lawn for sun bathing. There is a large breakfast room, activity room, Spanish language school and Peruvian cooking classes. Good location, short walk to the central Plaza de Armas. The staff is very... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here. It's a really welcoming, cozy place. Raquel, the manager was really helpful with answering questions, offering to let us leave our baggage when we traveled to Colca Canyon, calling cabs and making suggestions. We took the cooking class and loved it. The instructor was sweet and really knowledgeable and the dishes we... More

We were very happy with our stay in this hotel. We had seen reviews and photos on Trip Advisor prior to booking but were still surprised at how lovely and peaceful the outdoor garden area was - complete with the resident tortoise and even a couple of humming birds! It was a lovely way to spend an hour in the... More

The outdoor area at Casa de Avila is pretty, but if you're going to Arequipa, I doubt you're going to want to spend time in a lounge chair in the center of a hotel. There's so much more to do! This hotel is pretty cheap, but you get what you pay for. It wasn't that clean, and it was pretty... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your opinion. It helps improve our service and check our mistakes. I agree the main amenity out the room in Casa de Avila is the courtyard and lounge chairs. But you can count as amenity a great breakfast served in the garden, Yoga on Wednesday and Friday, free city tour, vending products and the Peruvian... More

The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice with consistent HOT water and great water pressure. We also had our Spanish lessons with their school as well and that definitely helped us to communicate better going forward on our trip. The garden is definitely a plus for our entire stay (5 days). The only negative is that during... More

A great place and awesome staff. They help show places to visit around the city and offer advice for traveling in it as well. They offer Peruvian cooking classes, Spanish classes and a class to learn how to make pisco sour! They were definitely awesome and I will be going back there next time I travel to Peru!
